What is this mod?

After two years, it's finally here, an update to the Anglo Zulu War. This mod is a total overhaul of Anglo Zulu war, rebuilt from the ground up. It aims to to be completely superior to the previous Anglo Zulu War while offering the familiar fun gameplay of fighting off endless Zulus.

The setting

The Anglo-Zulu War was fought in 1879 between the British Empire and the Zulu Kingdom. Following a campaign by which Lord Carnarvon had successfully brought about federation in Canada, it was thought that similar combined military and political campaigns might succeed with the various African kingdoms, tribal areas and Boer republics in South Africa. In 1874, Sir Henry Bartle Frere was sent to South Africa as High Commissioner for the British Empire to bring the plans into being. Among the obstacles were the presence of the independent states of the South African Republic and the Kingdom of Zululand and its army. Frere, on his own initiative, without the approval of the British governmen and with the intent of instigating a war with the Zulu, had presented an ultimatum on 11 December 1878, to the Zulu king Cetshwayo with which the Zulu king could not comply. Cetshwayo did not comply and Bartle Frere sent Lord Chelmsford to invade Zululand.The war is notable for several particularly bloody battles, including a stunning opening victory by the Zulu at Isandlwana, as well as for being a landmark in the timeline of imperialism in the region. The war pitted British troops equipped with Single shot breech loading Martini-Henry rifles, against vastly greater numbers of Zulu warriors, armed with short stabbing spears and cowhide shields. The Zulus were no savages though, having an organised system of supply and strategic tactics. The war eventually resulted in a British victory and the end of the Zulu nation's independence.
